On June 16th, 3Nod Group (KOSDAQ: A900010), the first foreign company listed on Korea’s stock market, announced a joint scholarship with Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) to help qualified Chinese and Korean professionals pursue business education at CKGSB’s full-time MBA Programme. Applications are now being accepted.
A total yearly sum of RMB200, 000 will go to exemplary students who seek to pursue MBA at CKGSB since 2014. The basic requirements to be considered for the CKGSB-3Nod Scholarship include at least two years of work experience in Sino-Korean business field, Bachelor’s degree and a competitive GMAT score. Evaluation will be completed along the regular application process. Personal essays are needed to demonstrate interest and potential to strengthen Sino-Korean ties.
‘We see tremendous Sino-Korean business opportunities that are available now and in the future. It’s imperative we help develop next-generation leaders who are to shape tomorrow’s business world,’ said 3NOD Chairman and CKGSB alum Liu Zhixiong. 3Nod is a leading digital audio manufacturer world-wide, with some 600 branches throughout China and a sales network reaching about 30 countries including the United States and Korea.
‘CKGSB is the right place to develop future leaders, as I can tell from my personal study experience that the School has the knowledge, networks and depth of understanding to help all students reach their full potential,’ said Mr. Liu.
Apart from above financial assistance, Mr. Liu has agreed to join other CKGSB alums to become a personal mentor of MBA students, guiding them through career challenges.
For Korean students, the Scholarship is only one of the choices. For example, CKGSB Jang Bo Go Scholarship, which was launched in Jan. 2013, offers full funding to South Korean citizens.
